Description

This winter, Wildlands Trust brings you Wildlife on the Move, a free lecture series spotlighting the fascinating lives of a few of Massachusetts’s seasonally local wildlife.

Join Professor Steven Reppert, MD for a look at the beauty and biology of the Monarch Butterfly migration. All aspects of the multigenerational migration of eastern North American monarch butterflies will be discussed. This will include a historical perspective, an overview of the annual migration cycle, a travelogue of the monarchs’ remarkable navigational abilities, and a discussion of current threats and conservation efforts.

Steven Reppert, MD, is an Emeritus Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester MA. He is known for his research on the navigational mechanisms used by migratory monarch butterflies during their long-distance journey to Mexico. He currently is an educator, lecturer, and writer on all things monarch. For details see: http://reppertlab.org/
